Europe Engage - Developing a Culture of Civic Engagement through Service-Learning within Higher Education in Europe
Start date: Sep 1, 2014, End date: Aug 31, 2017 PROJECT  FINISHED 

The ‘Europe Engage’ Project seeks to embed the concept and practice of the civic university through service-learning and student engagement with community. The overall aim of ‘Europe Engage’ will be to promote Service-Learning as an innovative pedagogical approach that embeds and develops civic engagement within higher education, students, staff and the wider community. Europe Engage will support universities in Europe to share knowledge and build capacity to embed service-learning across the curriculum in higher education in Europe for improving significant learning and professional competences, social responsibility and active citizenship. It will act as a regional hub from which to consolidate and articulate the extent of service-learning from universities within Europe. It will achieve this, significantly, through the sharing of knowledge, the development of resources and case studies, the training of leadership, academic staff and students; an interactive and knowledge rich website and through interaction with project partners and the building of relationships. Key stakeholders are academic staff and researchers directly involved in the project, students doing service-learning practices, academic tutors from the participating universities and mentors from the social entities where the services are provided, beneficiaries of the service-learning practices, and academic authorities and local, regional, national and international authorities who play an important role in the institutionalization of service-learning.
